Aerotech introduces RCP-DELTA robot and controller

Aerotech introduces RCP-DELTA robot and controller

Aerotech has combined a delta robot with a scalable, open-architecture controller based on its proven A3200 machine controller, to provide the RCP-DELTA. The RCP-DELTA is available in four models that support payloads up to 3 kg, with X/Y operating ranges of 500/800/1100/1300 mm, and an optional continuous rotation about the Z axis (yaw).

Extensive use of carbon fibre and light-weight aluminum on the RCP-DELTA results in a robot that is capable of sustaining 200 pick-and-place operations per minute with peak acceleration on the order of 15g. With absolute encoders on each motor the RCP-DELTA robot never has to be referenced, even after a loss of power.

The RCP-DELTA control system is based on Aerotech's A3200 Machine Controller. The A3200's networked, distributed architecture provides a scalable platform upon which additional RCP-DELTA robots, I/O, and positioning devices can be integrated easily. Multiple programming interfaces provide deployment flexibility on the RCP-DELTA by allowing developers to work in the environment that matches their skill sets or application requirements.

External sensors are supported on the RCP-DELTA with industry standard fieldbuses (EtherCAT, Modbus TCP, Ethernet/IP, and others) or applications operating in the RCP-DELTA controller's real-time enabled Windows operating system.

Multiple robot configurations

IP65 protection is standard on the RCP-DELTA (sealed against dust and low-pressure water jets) and IP69K (sealed against dust and close-range high pressure and high temperature spray) is available on the RCP-DELTA for applications where periodic cleaning with high-pressure water and/or steam is required.

The RCP-DELTA supports all standard A3200 programming and control capabilities such as multi-block look-ahead, corner rounding, and command shaping. Additional Delta robot specific functions are included on the RCP-DELTA controller for common robotic operations such as target queues, tracking moving material, and teaching tool/part locations.
